What are the best exercises for golfers?

One that will help you play golf longer, increase your flexibility and tone your body?

It’s a mix between callanetics and pilates which I’ll explain in a minute. But you should know that Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam both do pilates.

Tiger’s Major Chase

Now non golfers think golf isn’t an athletic sport. Tell that to Tiger Woods!

The man is an incredible athlete. He’s in top physical shape and prides himself on fitness.

It’s the main reason he’ll pass Jack Nicklaus for most Major Championship victories. Why? Because Tiger will be able to play well into his 50′s since he’s in fantastic shape. He’ll have more chances to win Majors because of his physical fitness.

I guarantee Tiger will be in far better shape at the age of 56 than Jack was when he won his last Major at the 1986 Masters at the age of 46.

What does this have to do with anything?

Fitness and taking care of your body, that’s what!

If you’re like me, you love this sport and you want to play the game as long as possible.

But you have to take care of your body to do so. That’s what I’ve been doing for the last few years and I want to let you know about a really great exercise program I came across.

Read on to learn about this program that costs a quarter of a gym membership, tones your body and increases your flexibility.

A Pilates and Callanetics hybrid

I do want to be up front to begin with. I’m a marketer on the side and one of my clients Lacey Kondi operates a total body toning workout for women and men.

She has a studio in downtown Vancouver, Canada and a website that offers online videos of her hybrid exercise. It’s a mix between callanetics and pilates.

My work with her has allowed me to access her online videos. I’ve taken advantage of this and thank god! Since I’ve been playing golf for over 20 years, my body feels older than it is most days.

Like you I’m sure my back aches and my knees don’t bend like they use to. All that turning and bending down takes a lot out of you. My muscles are always tight and I never feel fully relaxed on the course.

But I’ve felt much better on the course lately since I’ve been following Lacey’s online videos.

Her workouts don’t add muscle mass and make you look like a UFC fighter.

Instead you’ll experience results like:

  • increased flexibility
  • stronger core strength
  • improved posture
  • toned body

All four areas are extremely important for us golfers. You’ll also feel more confident because of the shape you’re in. This will lead to more confidence on the course.

So when asking what are the best exercises for golfers, head to Kondi Callanetics for online videos. She gives you a free two week trial. This gives you enough time to test before you buy. But still, access to all her videos for the entire year is just $99. I paid $79 for a green fee this past Sunday and I can say I’ve gotten way more value out of her online videos.

I’ve heard more about Pilates and Callentics helping golfers with their core strength and fitness. I’ll have to try a few classes and maybe join Lacey’s website.

Hi Jordan,

I’ve always though Golf was for the rich people.

Such a wrong mentality.

Hope I can spend some of my time playing it.

Nice Read

Cheers
